International Meetup Series For Creative Entrepreneurs Start March 23, 2021! 🔥

All over the world, creative entrepreneurs come up with alternative concepts or methods to get their business through the corona crisis in the best possible way. They are looking for new income or chasing smart savings, which hopefully will continue to work after the crisis. Governments alike are also looking at new ways of supporting businesses through this crisis. In this Meetup we will share some of the most innovative approaches in the DC Network regions of how creative entrepreneurs and policy makers tackled COVID-19.  The DC Network Meetup #1 will be hosted by DC Network member-region Baden-Württemberg.
